SLOW HAND DESIGN Interweaving the Spirit of Thai Craftsmanship

17-22 April 2012

Superstudio Piu, Via Tortona, Milano, Italy

Thailand a land of colorful people and rich culture has also created an identity that differentiates it from other countries.  Their culture nurtures their skilled craftsmanship and handicraft works from a young age.  Objects, created by hand connect the Thai people to their heritage and history but also represent their present as well.

New blood influences the designs of the present and brings the local identity of craftsmanship into their modern industries.

Thailand’s pride of Design Excellence (DeMark) award showcases the craftsmanship and the new design development to reflect the inseparable relations between local creative wisdom and the global context of industries.


Reviving Civilization

The Baan Chiang Collection

Beyond Living has woven yarns by hand since 2002.  The nature of their production development comes from their idea to use local artisans in conjunction with their textile weaving.  The Baan Chiang hanging collection fuses together many techniques such as hand embroideries, patchworks, quilts and stitching and then brings in various earth toned materials from all over Thailand, this way the legend of the ancient Baan Chiang civilization can be sustained into modern times.
